Ensembl speakerThe main cylinder making the Ensembl as as the main speaker unit, but the addition of different modules turn into nothing less than a "smart wirelessly charged home entertainment system," at least according to the company. Actual modules were not available at the show, but the Ashley Chloe says these can include a 360-degree IP camera, glowing lantern disc, Qi charging base, battery and even a pico projector.

The modules connect to the base via either USB-C or pogo pins (or both), and Ashley Chloe hopes it can get 3rd parties aboard the platform to produce different accessories.

Ashley Chloe adds so far the Ensembl is strictly in the concept phase, but should the market show interest it might become an actual product by end 2019.
